An honest team discussion about a winning mentality.
It has been over a month since NorCal Regionals 2018 concluded, but there is still plenty of video content pouring out of Capcom’s most recent premier event in North America. In this latest piece of content coming out of the NCR, Cygames Beast’ Chris Tatarian interviews his teammate, Daigo “The Beast” Umehara — with the help of the latter’s translator, Shino — about his tournament mindset and decision-making.
This interview is refreshing to watch, because it consists of one pro speaking to another, instead of a FGC journalist or personality. Also, since both players are teammates, the interview feels more like a discussion or lecture on improving one’s competitive mindset than a typical Q&A. Chris presents his questions by outlining what he himself has had trouble with and then asks Daigo what his thought process is behind those decisions. Overall, this is a very educational and informative interview for anyone looking to improve their mental game in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.
